Wine Reads by Jay McInerney


A collection of short stories and essays where wine has THE starring role.  We have a combo of fiction, non-fiction and lots of wine and food references throughout.  One of the names/stories that attracted me was Kermit Lynch.  I don’t think we have ever had a wine with Kermit Lynch’s name attached that we didn’t like.  The book  Adventures on the Wine Route was fairly recently acquired so seeing it in this compendium was a bonus.

Remember the movie Sideways?  It’s not an academy award winner but if you’d like to see a movie which revolves around wine, this is one, but I have not read the book.   that book is referenced here as well.  Books like this let me live vicariously with the details about good food and wine.  Fun read.

This author has written other books about wine, one I liked was Bacchus and Me: Adventures in the Wine Cellar.

Much Thanks to Netgalley for this book. All opinions are my own and I was not compensated for the review.

  2. You posted this when I was on vacation … so I’m just getting to it now. I haven’t read Adventures on the Wine Route yet, but I *did* read Sideways — worth reading or listening to.
